I wouldn't sweat the weight. This is a very good bike; whatever weight it is is the right weight.
thanks! I will let my LBS have a look at the bike ... they are very good with vintage bikes ... frame saver is definately going to be used though (I have a brand new Surly LHT which is due for it's first service and from what I read, a bottle of frame saver is enough for 2 bike frames
